1 John 5:1-5
Think on it abit.
If we believe that Jesus the Christ (the Saviour, the Messiah) then we are born of God. If we love God the Father, we are born of God. Think on that for a bit. Born of God. Doesn't that just shout out that you Belong to God. if you are born of something... then you belong to that something. T'is a good thing NO? To be born of God?
We show this belongings in our actions and it's how folks know that we love God and belong to him... by our love for each other and the fact that we keep (or hold to) what he says we should do.
He doesn't give us commands that are hard to handle.. they aren't meant to be burdensome. They are a help to us in overcoming the world. And we have to know we HAVE overcome the world when we believe in God the Father and the what he did for us. Christ DIED for us. And be so doing.. he overcame the world.
Our faith.. our faith makes this real to us. Belief in Jesus and his actions on our behalf. Our belongingness to God. And we have OVERCOME the world! (well.. Christ did it on our behalf at the will of the Father). The world is overcome!
So it matters not if I am scatter-brained and feel distracted by the whole world around me... God knows it. He calls me his own. He reminds me that I have already overcome the distractions of the world and makes me able to focus on him even as I feel pulled in many directions this day.
And so am I at peace with him and able do fulfill what he has called me to. To just spend some time with him, in the quietness of my heart and this keyboard. :) Focused time with God. "this a good thing yes? :)
